One of the best books I've read and I don't usually like history. However, Howard Zinn doesn't write it from the Rich Boy's point of view; he uncovers what's behind their actions. It gives you facts and not just opinion, and answers the question of who is really in control.

I had to read this book for my AP United States History class, and I was amazed at how good this book was. It goes deep into events in history that I didn't even know happened, and it was amazing to see the formation of the United States from a totally different point of view. This book is brutally honest about our nation's history, and it gives us a chance to reconsider beliefs about our country that have been hammered into us by previous history books. This book should be read by every American because it gives us the chance of finding out the truth about our real history.

"Review" by , "Those accustomed to the texts of an earlier generation, in which the rise of American democracy and the growth of national power were the embodiment of Progress, may be startled by Professor Zinn's narrative. From the opening pages, an account of 'the European invasion of the Indian settlements in the Americas,' there is a reversal of perspective, a reshuffling of heroes and villains."
"Review" by , "One of the most important books I have ever read in a long life of reading....It's a wonderful, splendid book — a book that should be read by every American, student or otherwise, who wants to understand his country, its true history, and its hope for the future."
